Garmin eTrex Venture HC

Small and Simple
The Garmin eTrex Venture HC is perfect for the budget-minded, the gadget-averse, or anyone looking for a light, packable device. (It weighs six ounces and is roughly the size of a deck of cards.) The sensitive receiver can quickly pinpoint your location and automatically corrects satellite variations for much more accurate elevation readings. Pre-loaded maps are beginner-friendly, if somewhat basic. $182; garmin.com
